GBS20HBSBWW BOTTOM FREEZER, MAKING LOUD NOISE WHEN I TURN THE ADJUST KNOB IN THE REFRIGERATOR TOP TO 0 THE NOISE STOPS.


It sounds like your fan is hitting something. Usually there will be an ice block or something in the freezer pushed in on the back and cased the fan or wire to move ect... I hope this helps

GE bottom freezer began making a clicking noise, will not run


The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it’s bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it’s bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it’s ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it don’t cost much in most cases (less than $25). If you replace it and it doesn’t work then the compressor is bad and you’ll need you call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing). You can also enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for diagrams and illustrations.

The unit stopped dispensing water, makes clicking nose


If you would like to do this yourself and save the fee of a service tech I ill tell you the motherboard and compressor start components have been affected. Just replacing the board is not always the answer. These refrigerators are sensitive to electrical surge, fan failure, compressor start component failure and eliminating the cause is the best and less expensive way to approach this, I will return later and discuss parts and I do need you to confirm your model is the GSH25JFR, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer stops freezing


How long has this happened and when did it begin. Your refrigerator has a control board located on the back inside a panel. You may need to unplug and look for burns on that board. Let me know for sure that the model is HSM25GFTSA

Whirlpool freezer and the refrigerator.


Chances are your defrosting clock is stuck or quit working.
The clock works as timer to set time for defrost, at which time it stops the compressor, and turns a heater tube next the cooling coils to melt ice. It depends on your expertise if you want to try replacement,as most replacement are universal, and some rewiring is sometime involved. The clock is usually in front at the bottom behind the removable grill, or in the back. It looks like a square box with a dial that has a one way turn knob. To check use flat screwdriver to slowly turn dial (you can only turn one way) until the compressor stops, then wait to see if compressor starts back on it's own (it might take as long as 30 min.).
If it does not start it's bad and need replacement. Of course you can turn dial again until it starts again so you can use fridge. If it does start it could still have been the problem where the clock got stuck, and you got it going again by turning the knob, but let it run. If it works for a while and then have the same problem again the replace clock.
Hope this helps you
